Clare, Peter, David and Les met for coffee and conversation at Rustik on Wednesday 26th April. Les facilitated a discussion about LTE Broadcasting which early adopter Telstra has been trialling and which will be rolled out nation wide next year. It is basically aimed at high quality video or multimedia services for mobile devices capable of receiving 4G LTE-B transmissions although obviously the content could be cast to a TV receiver from mobiles using a Chromecast or similar device. The content to be provided is not fully decided but could range from sporting events to first release movies. Both Telstra and Optus appear to be looking ahead for new products and services to replace existing ones in life after NBN.
Please note - The coffee catch up date has changed from the fourth Wednesday to 10.30 am on the fourth Thursday at 3 pm at Rustik to enable tech savvy wine afficionados to attend Wine Appreciation activities as a less cerebral endeavour!
